Payroll & Paycheck Rules

  • Independent Contractor Or Employee?
    Sometimes the differences between your employees and independent contractors seems negligible. Their work may be the same and their salaries almost indistinguishable, but regardless of whether you see significant differences among the people you pay, there is someone who does: the IRS.

    If a company mistakenly classifies an employee as an independent contractor, it faces severe penalties and is generally held liable for employment taxes. So it's important to carefully distinguish between your workers and your independent contractors.

  • Fringe Benefits

  • Multi-State Taxation
    If your company has operations in more than one state, you may be faced with income tax withholding for more than one state. Sometimes, you may even have to withhold income tax for more than one state from the same employee.

    Deciding which state's income tax to withhold can be a confusing process. How do you determine who is a resident and whether you should follow the laws of the state of residence or the laws of the state in which services are performed? Not all states answer these basic questions in the same way and, sometimes, state laws conflict.

    More Details/Order:
  • Garnishments
    As with all of the federal and state laws, garnishment rules and regulations that must be followed to the letter - and with the constant threat of penalties for violating any one of them - it's no wonder why processing each and every garnishment is such a daunting task.

    Therefore, understanding the correct process for handling garnishments, even before you might have to deal with one, is of the utmost importance, and one we'll help you conquer in this training session.

  • How Workers' Compensation Works
    When an employee is injured at work, Workers' Compensation benefits are available to cover lost wages and medical costs related to the injury.

  • Return-To-Work Strategies
    Employers want employees to return to work from their occupational injuries in the least amount of time away from work.

    Studies show that the employee will more likely make a full recovery and continue working a long and productive work life if they return in the least amount of time, but returning to work often carries with it restrictions, disabilities, obligations, and frustrations (on both sides).

    Such situations require careful assessments and knowledge of all the elements necessary to fit together what often seems like a complicated puzzle. Leaving out an assessment of employer obligations of just one piece of such a puzzle can have serious ramifications. And that's where this training session can help!
